    A very good insight into the "rise and rise of bitcoin", however, I'm alarmed at the backing that this currency is getting. Clearly the narrator is a strong advocate of bitcoin - but it would have been more interesting to have received the socio-economics impacts of the growth of such a currency, i.e. the similarities between bitcoin and the gold standard (which collapsed). I also feel that bitcoin was innocent when owned and driven by intellectual computer scientists. However, these hopeful idealists seem out of tune with the corruption and greed of society - which is why control of the process is slowly slipping out of their hands today...
